Around the Archaeology Blogosphere Digest #1

Posted on September 5, 2014


Over a year ago I used to do a weekly post of other Archaeology Blogs worth following, highlighting some of the other archeo blogs out there. I would like to pick back up that tradition. However, instead of focusing on the whole blog I am going to be collecting all the posts from the last week by those blogs. I realise not everyone uses an RSS reader and some people might be interested in occasional posts from a blog and not follow them constantly. Also, I figure there is no better way to determine if you like a blog than by reading some of their work. So the new version will be links to all the posts from the last week.

I took these posts from my now updated list of archaeology blogs (400+ and counting). Though I have noticed a few blogs that should be in this list are missing. I will try to figure out why my RSS feed did not capture them. Anyways if you know a great archaeology blog that I don’t have in that list please let me know and I will add them. And here are this weeks posts for some nice weekend reading:
